We stayed in January 2016 for 8 nights. As a family of 4 (4 yr old + 6 yr old) we had a big basement room with ensuite and basic kitchenette. The accommodation was clean, staff friendly, the washing machine/dryers awesome and the daily breakfast was perfect. Just be aware that the floors and walls are very thin which can... More

Never been to hakuba before so followed trip advisor reviews . Penke panke was great , clean rooms, fun atmosphere , good food (and kitchen for when needed). And service worthy of 5*. Including transport around town to fix broken credit card . Generally all round great.

We were on our second trip to Hakuba and we tried to stay at the excellent lodge (also managed by the same guys as manage PP) again but could only get 3 days, so accepted a further 3 days at Penke Panke. Maybe if we'd come here first we would have liked it better - because it's a pretty good... More

We stayed for 2 weeks with our 8 year old and 3 month old and I would happily recommend it. The lodge has all the trappings of a large lodge but has managed to retain the homely/welcoming feel of a smaller lodge through its excellent personalised customer service. The kitchens were a big plus for us and we used their... More

We went to Hakuba not knowing what to expect having never been to Japan and had an amazing time at Penke Panke. From the outset out experience making our reservation with Justin was great. The lodge staff picked us up and took us for a tour of town on our way to the lodge which was great. Once we were... More

We stayed at Penke Panke Lodge for 7 nights and we had a fantastic time there! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms we stayed in were clean, comfortable and warm. These rooms we requested had their own individual bathrooms but Penke Panke also has dormitory style accommodation as well. The communal kitchen and lounge areas were great... More

Located in Wadano, the location is a bit off from the hustle and bustle of Happo. Our 2-night stay was fairly comfortable; we had a lovely room for 2 on the 2nd level, unfortunately, right next to the common toilets. Things got a little noisy at times. The very small common bath is on the first floor, and you have... More

What a start to a holiday! The staff at Penke Panke were so helpful. From being picked up from the bus station in town, to tips with bus time tables & getting around what a great place. Penke Panke offer shuttles to the supermarket, ATM & 7/11. I was even lucky enough to be part of a staff road trip... More
